The Maine Wildlife Park in Gray has always had a wide variety of attractions and features for just about everyone to enjoy. Whether it’s a bald eagle, a great horned owl or a mountain lion you’re sure to see something that catches your eye. But wait until you get a look at their latest creation.
In a place where larger than life sights are their specialty, the latest attraction could very well be the largest of them all. In an attempt to highlight the cooperation between the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and the Maine Wildlife Park, staff at the facility decided to create a logo that no one would miss.
Standing nearly 19 feet tall and 18 feet wide, the new Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife logo adorning the entrance to the park is certainly impressive. Weighing nearly four tons, it has more than 26,000 fasteners holding it together and it’s anchored to the ground by 1,800 pounds of concrete.
It’s quickly becoming a tourist attraction with scores of people stopping to take a photo with the giant logo.
Later this month, there will be even more reasons for you to grab your camera and head to the Game Farm Road in Gray. The Maine Wildlife Park will celebrate National Hunting and Fishing Day where they will play host to several of our game wardens featured on the hit television show “North Woods Law.” It’s sure to be a great time to check out all that the park has to offer while supporting Maine’s rich hunting and fishing tradition and the 135th anniversary of the Maine Warden Service.
The event happens on Saturday, September 26. You can find all the details on their website: http://www.maine.gov/ifw/education/wildlifepark/
